What kind of quality is the stock thermal paste that Corsair provides on their H series coolers? Would it be worth replacing with Arctic Silver 5?

Ok, here's some pics. I've got everything but the vid card, still trying to decide what I want to get, or which 580 I want, to be more specific. I like this case a lot and am really pleased with how this turned out.

The first generation (H50/70) was Shin-Etsu and the second generation (H60/80/100) is Dow Corning. I remounted my H50 using AS5 and didn't notice any difference at all. That being said, I wouldn't recommend replace the stock TIM looking for gains... the stock paste they use is high quality stuff.

One question I've never seen addressed, when swapping out the top 200mm for dual 120's, is it better to mount them right where the 200 was or in the "channel" just under the top grille? Thanks!

Either way would work fine. I would suppose you may get better airflow with the fans in the top "fan compartment" since they would be closer to both grilles, eliminating any dead air space, but I'm sure either would be ok.

Also I would like to replace the two 200mm stock fans with something quieter. I've done some research and haven't found anyone seemingly enthusiast about one model or another, cited references are soem Cooler Master Megaflow and some Yate Loons... Does anyone know any quiet 200mm fan, I mean quitet enough for me to feel a significant difference with the stock Coorsaiir ones while puhsing at least the same amount of airflow?

The 120mm Scythe gentle typhoons may be worth considering. The 120mm loons are supposed to be one of the best budget fans. Just about any decent 200mm fan is fine if you turn it down. The problem is you only have 25mm of space to fit a 200mm fan in the front, while most 200mm fans are 30mm thick.

There are a couple of fans that will mount up front with no problems, but I don't know if they are any quieter than the stock fan. If you really want to get rid of the front fan noise, cut the grille out. Apparently that quiets it right down.

Here's a link to the mod I did for push/pull H100 in a 600T.

They use shin-etsu on the H50 and H70 while the H60, H80 and H100 use Dow Corning. These TIMs are pretty much equivalent to AC5 except they don't need a 200 hour curing time.

Not without modding.

How did you go about modding the LEDs? Was it hard? There are no 200mm x 30mm white led fans, so I am stuck with getting the Megaflow. Unfortunately, they don't make the megaflow in white LED, so I'd like to do what you did... I just don't know how easy it would be.

Rebuilt my rig in a 600T last week and I'm absolutely loving the case. Besides the fact that it's sexy as hell, the ease of installing all the parts and the cable management possibilities are phenomenal.

I know it isn't as tidy as it could be, but this was my first own build and you don't want to see what I came from (seriously, you don't, I would create mass heart attacks for viewers in this topic). Pretty pleased as it stands now! Now I only have to find a way to get the mesh side panel to these parts of the world. =/

The two 200mm fans are Xigmatek XLF-F2004's, pretty useless I know, because they're essentially the same as the Corsair fans. However I didn't know this beforehand and changed them anyway. =P I got the idea for the fan in the middle from CloudFire (page 109) as I had one lying around and hoped it would decrease the temps on my GPU's a bit, however it doesn't seem to do much difference. Ah well.

*edit: Middle fan seems to do quite a bit on load temperatures. Before GPU1 (bottom) and GPU2 (top) did 73 and 74 degrees on load, now GPU1 is the same but GPU2 is at 67 degrees. Hurray!

Love your set up, and the dashboard on your desktop looks very clean and useful. I would hide that power strip though;)

Not sure, this is the reverse of shroud thinking......

I have taken this 600t pretty far, and feel like I have painted myself into a corner. There is a Case labs M8 calling my name, I am not sure if I can prolong the inevitable any further......

For every one person who gets better temps wiping off the stock TIM, 9 people get the same or worse. I don't think you are going to do much better unless you are using the liquid metal stuff.

H60 - Before Push/Pull 2x Scythe AP15

H100 - After Pull 2x Scythe AP15

Dropped my CPU to 33 (from 37) and my NB to 32 (from 35). Still need to do a little more cable organizing.

It's no worse than the 200mm fan that's inside the case. Better in fact since the 2 x 120mm fans move more air anyway. However, given the choice I would likely pick the fan compartment as well.

Man, I just had a look at that case. It's very...utilitarian. Sure, it has lots of room for everything (like a big refrigerator) but man, it just has no class. I could never own a case like that. It's like putting your computer in a bar fridge.

Maybe some black spray paint might fix it up a little or something.

Are your temps really so bad? You're using four rads and full water loops on your CPU and GPUs. I'm using air and one H100. I'm happy as a pig in hoo hoo.

What was it that attracted you to the 600T in the first place? What was it that made you do such a 180 in your preferred case style?

It's like owning a sports car and suddenly trading it in for a pickup truck.
